In 1944, Admiral Lord Ramsay was put in charge of the Allied Naval Expeditionary Force for the invasion of France.  As a result, he played a major part in the planning for D-Day. 

Here his grandson Will Ramsay talks about his role in both Dunkirk and D-Day operations.
 
You can visit the Admiral Ramsay Museum in Bughtrig, Coldstream, United Kingdom, which was opened in 2023, in memory of him and all who served at Dunkirk, D-Day & also WW2.
